3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle served in Duvel snifter: Pours a coppery hue with an initial large frothy white head that does fade a bit, okay lace. The aroma has notes of banana, apricot, peach, dusty earthy esters, some alcohol and candi sugar, and caramlized biscuity malts. The taste is a touch sweet and fruity with a dollop of spicy notes on the finish. Unlike many Quads this does not have the character of Special B malts nor the overall depth. Seems more like an amped up Tripel with all the same yeastie notes. The mouth feel is smooth and moderately carbonated with some boozy warmth as well. Gotta admit I am a bit disappointed in this beer, was expecting something it failed to deliver upon.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, best before 2017-07-10. Pour likely hazy and orange copper with a very frizzy white foam that leave my sight pretty fast. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar and yeast. Sugar, alcohol and tasty yeast share the stage for this wonderful quad. Medium to full body, oily and normal carbonation for the style. Nice long and enjoyable brown sugar finish.

Schönes dunkles Bernstein mit dichtem weißem Schaum. Süßer, malziger recht schwerer Körper, wärmend alkoholisch. Stimme von Karamell, gebranntem Zucker, zuckerwatte, etwas Rote Fruchte und Hefe. Kein einfaches Bier, etwas sperrig aber gut.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
33 cl bottle served in La Trappe chalice. Pours cloudy reddish amber with a large good-lacing non-lasting off-white head. Subtle and diverse aromas that increase with temperature: berries (redcurrant, cranberry, some cherry, some plum) and roses. Also chocolate, tobacco, butterscotch. Quite powerful in the mouth, high carb. Tasty, crisp, nice acidity, fantastic umami (pair it with shellfish and see how you like it), no bitterness. Not as long as other quadrupels, but very nice.

Wonderful beer. Rum, raisins, ripe cherries, caramel, burnt sugar. Sweet but not cloying it sticky. Finish lingers but clean.
